Staging Tips

You’ve heard it before: it’s all about first impressions and I’m here to help in that first impression!

  • Declutter furniture and closets.
  • Highlight the most special features of your home.
  • Remove personal items and pictures.
  • Neutralize the surroundings.
  • Be mindful of odors in your home (cooking, animal, etc.).
  • Set the dining room table with attractive linens and dishes.
  • Neatly arrange fresh flowers throughout your home.
  • Uses mirrors to help smaller rooms look larger.
  • Remove curtains and furniture that don’t let in natural light.

Points to ponder…

  • Decorating your home to live in is very different than decorating it to sell.
  • The time and cost of preparing your house to sell is less than the cost of your first price reduction.
  • Staged homes on an average sell quicker than non-staged homes.
  • Buyers perceive value in homes that are staged and are willing to pay more    money.
